INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study investigated pessary self-management (PSM). The primary outcome was how often PSM was taught to patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Secondary outcomes were associations of PSM with treatment continuation, side effects, changing to surgery, and number of doctor consultations in the first year after treatment initiation compared with clinical management (CM). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 300 patients visiting three Dutch medical centres in 2019, and receiving a pessary for POP...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Most studies attempting to estimate the age-related prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI) have used questionnaires. In the present study we analysed a consecutive series of urodynamic test results to determine the distribution of the different types of UI in pre- and post-menopausal women. We hypothesised that the prevalence of urodynamic stress incontinence (USI) would be significantly greater in pre-menopausal than in post-menopausal women. METHODS: All women from a large tertiary urogynaecology department, who underwent urodynamic tests during the years 2000-2015 were included...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There is a rising trend among women towards nonpharmacological approaches owing to their minimally invasive nature and limited adverse effects. Virtual reality (VR) has recently gained popularity as a new technology for reducing pain and anxiety in medical settings. Our research sought to investigate the impact of VR on pain and anxiety levels while undergoing episiotomy repair. METHODS: A comprehensive search was carried out across PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane Library, and ISI Web of Science to find relevant randomized clinical trials (RCTs) up to January 2024...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We describe the surgical management of intravesical mesh perforation following transvaginal mesh surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: A 73-year-old woman presented with intravesical mesh perforation 17 years following transvaginal mesh-based prolapse repair at an outside hospital. The patient presented with intermittent hematuria and recurrent urinary tract infections. Cystoscopy demonstrated an approximately 3-cm area of intravesical mesh with associated stone spanning from the bladder neck through the left trigone and ureteral orifice...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Women with vulvovaginal or genital pain more commonly experience interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) and urinary tract infections. However, the relationship between genital pain and bladder health is lacking. METHODS: Women in the Prevention of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Consortium's RISE FOR HEALTH population-based study answered questions about bladder health globally, and across nine bladder health domains of holding, efficacy, social-occupation, physical activity, intimacy, travel, emotion, perception, and freedom...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim was to assess the association between the degree of physical activity (PA) and the presence of pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) in a cohort of parous Ugandan women. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, PFDs were measured using symptom assessment, standardized questionnaires (Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory and Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire), and a standardized physical examination (POP-Q and cough stress test [CST]). Degree of PA was assessed using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Vaginal laxity (VL) is a common symptom of pelvic floor dysfunction. Although VL has become a frequent topic for research in the last decade, its pathogenesis is still not well understood. The objective was to determine whether vaginal parity or mode of delivery is associated with vaginal laxity. METHODS: This was a retrospective observational study involving women seen in a tertiary urogynecology clinic between May 2016 and November 2018 with symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The anatomy of the skeletal muscles located between the vagina and anus is important during complex obstetric laceration reconstructions. We aimed to clarify the composition of skeletal muscles located between the vagina and anal canal and their three-dimensional configuration relevant to perineum repair. METHODS: This observational study involved ten female cadavers. An anatomical dissection was performed to observe the muscles around the vagina and anal canal...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) impact women worldwide and are assessed using instruments such as the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory (PFDI-20) and Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire (PFIQ-7). There are no known valid PFD instruments in Uganda. This study's purpose was to translate and test the reliability and validity of the PFDI-20 and PFIQ-7 in Luganda. It was predicted that these instruments would be reliable and valid to assess the presence and impact of PFD in parous Luganda-speaking women...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We aimed to determine the incidence and risk factors for post-operative urinary retention (POUR) following surgery for perineal tears, and to determine the time to normal voiding after POUR. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of women who underwent surgery for old (≥ 3 months) obstetric perineal tears from January 2022 to December 2023. The diagnosis of POUR was made in a woman who completely failed to void despite a full bladder or, one who had post-void residual (PVR) > 150 ml within 10 min of voiding...

PURPOSE: The current study sought to evaluate the sexual function of transgender men and women and to identify associated factors. METHODS: Trans individuals who were outpatients at our gender incongruence (GI) center for follow-up of gender-affirming hormone therapy with age ranging 27 to 50 years were invited to participate in this cross-sectional study. Clinical data were collected from the medical records. Two scales, the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Male Sexual Function Index (MSFI), were administered to all females (n = 50) and all males (n = 58)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Postpartum urinary retention is one of the most common complications in women during the immediate postpartum period. The objective was to systematically assess risk factors for postpartum urinary retention after vaginal delivery. METHODS: Following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses, we retrieved relevant studies from PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science Core Collection, China National Knowledge Internet, Wangfang Database, and Chinese Biomedical Database for observational studies investigating the risk factors for postpartum urinary retention from inception to 11 November 2022...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study was aimed at exploring the immediate impacts of pelvic floor muscle exercises (PFMEs) on various maternal physiological parameters in pregnant women. METHODS: The study included a total of 52 women, 26 pregnant (Pregnant group: 28.04±6.01 years; 26.83±3.81 kg/m2 ) and 26 nonpregnant (Control group: 29.42±5.73 years; 25.41±3.03 kg/m2 ) individuals. All women received PFME as follows: PFME was performed for 5 min (6-s holding contraction, 10 s of relaxation, 3 rapid PFM contractions)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pregnancy is associated with an increase in pelvic floor dysfunction. Yoga, an ancient Indian practice involving asanas (physical postures), pranayam (breathing patterns) and meditation, can help women to control their pelvic floor muscles. However, the literature to support yoga as a remedy for pelvic floor dysfunction is lacking. We hypothesized that yoga could be an important method in improving pelvic floor dysfunction in pregnancy. METHODS: In a randomised control study, 200 pregnant women matched for age, weight, parity and physical activity were randomised at the 13- to 20-week period of gestation into two groups: group I (n = 100, undergoing yoga therapy) and group II (n = 100, given usual antenatal care)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Risk factors for pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) are not well understood in lower resource settings. The objective of this study is to determine the risk factors associated with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), urge urinary incontinence (UUI), and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) among women of reproductive age in rural Nepal. METHODS: This is a case-control study nested within a community-based cross-sectional survey of parous women of reproductive age with PFDs in the Sarlahi District of Nepal...
